Finding fun and useful activities for children with learning disabilities can be complicated, as some fun activities are not really useful and some useful activities are not necessarily fun. A critical part of the learning process is the feeling of self-worth on the part of the child. By doing extra-curricular activities related to art, children can learn motor and language skills that could not be learned doing other activities. This accomplishment gives them the self-worth needed to learn even more skills.

About Beyond Tutoring
Beyond Tutoring provides essential education services for students from 5th grade through college (even to graduate school), especially those with exceptionalities. We are different from "tutors" because we teach success, not just facts. We coach on how to learn, how to play the game, how to get into and succeed in college and in life. We invented the "life hack" for students. And it doesn't stop there, we support the parents, teachers and caretakers of our students as well. The end goal is for each student to be their own advocate. We specialize in Educational Mapping, Academic Advocacy and College Counseling. As you can see, we go way Beyond Tutoring! On our blog, we curate thoughtful and innovative articles sourced from teachers, advocates, educational mappers and designers of curricula, pedagogy and environment to create compelling content and concrete advice.
